Discover the Once Secret “Micro Acupuncture 48” Treatment Program

With Andy Rosenfarb

After treating patients with various methods and acupuncture systems since the mid-1990’s, Dr. Rosenfarb has concluded that a system introduced in the 1980s in Demark called Micro Acupuncture 48 to be one of the best treatment modalities for many health conditions. Micro Acupuncture 48 is a relatively contemporary acupuncture system and combines elements from three other systems: (1) traditional meridian-based acupuncture, (2) reflexology, and (3) ECIWO (Embryo Containing Information of the Whole Organism). The system has 48 newly discovered acupuncture points (acupoints) —hence the name Micro Acupuncture 48—located only in the hands and feet.

Dr. Rosenfarb and the practitioners he has taught the system to over the years have confirmed this to be one of the absolute best acupuncture systems available to people with degenerative vision loss and other chronic neurological disorders.

In this one-hour course, Dr. Rosenfarb will give an overview and clinic tips about this exciting system.

Introduction to Micro Acupuncture 48: A Modern-Hybrid Acupuncture System

With Andy Rosenfarb

In this workshop, Dr. Rosenfarb will introduce the new Micro Acupuncture 48 system. He will explain the points and their basic use of the MA48 system to effectively treat an array of health conditions. Clinical experience shows that particularly good results are achievable for eye disorders, pain (acute & chronic), ADD/ADHD, tinnitus, neuropathies and other internal medical conditions.

The MA 48 system was developed in Denmark in the early 1980s and is kind of a hybrid-evolutionary form of the ECIWO system created by Professor Yingqing Zhang. MA48 was further developed by Dr. Rosenfarb in the early 2000s and in 2016, “The Black Book of Micro Acupuncture 48” was published. This was the first book to fully explain this system in detail with the point locations and clinical applications. This workshop will offer amazing new opportunities for attendees.

The Most Delicious Medicine In the World: Successful Dietary Strategies to Empower Your Practice
